The importance of using braces

- May 07, 2018-

For scoliosis deformity of more than 45 degrees, any non-surgical procedure is in vain and will only increase the patient's extra financial burden and delay valuable surgical treatment time. So-called electrotherapy and massage have no effect on spinal deformity. It is difficult to imagine that the patient's deformity can be corrected by these physical therapy methods.

Of course, the rehabilitation exercise of patients with scoliosis before and after surgery is also very important, which is conducive to shaping the patient's back muscle function and torso spine balance. We have a detailed rehabilitation exercise program for scoliosis. After these plans are hospitalized, we can provide them to patients for free. These physiotherapy methods are only supplementary treatment plans for surgical treatment. The entire treatment process requires the full cooperation of a spinal surgeon, physiotherapist, and bracing technician, but the treatment plan can only be determined by an experienced spinal surgeon. There are some misunderstandings in the treatment of scoliosis. Some people use the mentality of fear of surgery to use physical therapy to correct scoliosis. Actually, our ancestors tried to pull materialistic methods, such as traction, 1,000 years ago. All of these methods in the 1960s and 1970s were proved to be ineffective in correcting spinal deformities except for brace treatment. Evidence-based medicine and Medline search found that there was no 1 document confirming non-surgical treatment options other than brace for 20 years. Effective for scoliosis, some domestic so-called medical institutions still use the patient's medical information vulnerability to provide patients with less than real and comprehensive information, it is lack of basic professional ethics.
